How did I get leather Recaros in my non-Premium 2015 GT?

    I just joined the forum today. I got my 2015 GT on Halloween, its my first Mustang and I love it.

    A local dealer told me they had an GT Premium with PP and Recaros in competition orange, which was exactly the car I wanted. I told my wife, and we went in the next morning to look at it.

    As I spent more time on it, I realized it was not a Premium package, but a base GT... no toggles, no MyFordTouch. But it definitely has leather Recaros and the back seats are leather as well. To make a long story short, we bought it right then, got a great deal on it too, way cheaper than the GT Premium that was coming off the truck right then, and I am happy with the equipment level for the price I saved.

    But I am really stumped on how my car ended up with leather seats. It isn't dealer-installed leather, they did not special order the car for anyone, its obvious the seats are factory Recaros, etc, and its clearly not a GT premium. Even the window sticker says "Recaro cloth seats" .

    Anyone have any ideas? My best guess is a mistake at the factory??? Does that even happen anymore?

    It still happens. There's a picture around here of a manual GT with paddleshifters

    Yup, mistake at the factory. There is a whole thread on the forums for factory mess ups.

    Yes I will get some pics of the interior tomorrow. I am glad it happened, I didn't really want to spend the extra for the Premium package anyway, but I really wanted leather seats. I wasn't even planning to buy the car then, I was going to wait until later in the model year, but that car was my destiny! LOL

    I wonder how warranty would work on that if you ever had an issue on the seat. Ford would probably say it must have been purchased aftermarket and installed.

    If it's on the build sheet, it's under warranty.

    Can you post the decal from the window?

    I really wonder what is possible...if you submit certain things and they build them anyway.

    Maybe the dealer was able to hack into the order database lol. It's like a COPO Chevy!

    If the leather is on the window sticker you might have a rarity!

    Here is the window sticker... says "Recaro cloth seats". I wonder too about warranty work on it, hopefully I won't have any problems with the seats!

    Hey, according to the window sticker, you do have the PP. Also, I believe that if you have the PP, you can also have the Recaros. Can anyone verify this? or am I missing something here?

    They are 2 totally different options, you can have one without the other. You can also have them both like in this case but a lot of people have been mistaken and thinking the Recaros come as part of the PP, but it does not....

    Looks like you got the leather for free, if that is what you want you lucked out.

    Yes I wanted leather so I did luck out. That's why I bought this car from this dealer even though I an not thrilled with the process... Very old school, lots of hassles.

    @draco - the point is I bought a non-premium GT but it has leather. Your only supposed to be able to get leather on the premium, even if you get the Recaros. Non-premiums come with cloth, either standard seats or recaro seats.

    There was also a PREMIUM GT with "CLOTH" Reacro's someone found and posted on here a while back. Think it is in the thread with the other factory mess ups mentioned in post #3.
